Guess I don’t have to go to NJ after all…
Portishead start their tour at this year’s All Tomorrow’s Parties presentation, I’ll Be Your Mirror Saturday October 1 & Sunday October 2 taking place in Asbury Park, N.J. Portishead co-curated these two days of the 3 day festival. According to Adrian Utley, “We’ve always thought that we must come back to tour in the states, something we wanted to do with the release of Third, but our schedule just wouldn’t allow it. Being that we were asked to curate I’ll be your Mirror, this just seemed like a good start to touring the states – it set’s it off in absolutely the right way. We are absolutely delighted to come back.”
Following ATP, Portishead will play New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom for two nights, followed by shows in Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Mexico, two nights at The Shrine in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver. The tour ends in Denver on October 27th.
A limited run of presale tickets are available for purchase here from July 11-14. Tickets go on sale to the general public July 15 and 16, with the exception of Chicago, which goes on sale July 22. Support for Portishead on this tour is Thought Forms.
